Daenerys Targaryen aka Khaleesi from Game of Thrones is one of my most favourite characters. Every time she rides Drogon – the dragon or utters the word “Dracarys”, I get goosebumps all over my hand. This season as been pretty exciting and I can’t wait to see the last episode tomorrow, which I am sure is going to be ahhhmazing!!!
This weekend, I decided to draw her sketch along with dragons and everything. But in my excitement I forgot that I have absolutely zero skills to draw a real portrait 😛 So putting my resources to its best utilisation, I tried to draw Khaleesi … but well, she turned out into something else. The good thing about art is there are no rules. One by one, I added different elements as it occurred to me. I blended colors and used a combination of gel pens, pencil colors and acrylic paints.
The Khaleesi in my artworks looks more like an Elvan princess rather than ‘mother of dragons‘.
Here’s a picture-by-picture progression of my work. I love anime eyes and never let go of any opportunity to draw one. Pinterest is my favorite site to look for tutorials to draw eyes. I am terrible at drawing any other feature, so after few more search for tutorials, I managed to draw and paint the lips.
I used my silver and golden pencil colors as best as I could to color the hair.
And then came out the acrylic paints, to set the theme of Fire and Earth.
Once I was done with painting, I used a black pen to draw floral patterns. The choice of pen is very important here as those with fine tips might not work on a painted surface.
The Final Look, because there was no space to add anything else 😉
My palette looks quite messy though.
What do you think?
Are you too excited about the ultimate episode of Game of thrones?
